Where Blugold families come together

Your student's time away at college is full of lots of emotions—excitement, worry, hope. We want to make being a Blugold parent as easy as possible! Here, you'll find information on campus events, important deadlines and details on what UWEC is doing to ensure that your student has the best experience possible while on campus. 

This time of year, we love to welcome in our newest Blugold families. Check out this year's welcome message from Chancellor Schmidt to our new families! 

"Thank you for trusting us with your students. We can't wait to get to know them, and see all the wonderful things they will accomplish right here at UW-Eau Claire."

- Dr. James Schmidt, Chancellor, UW-Eau Claire
